As great sources of iron, cashew nuts contain twice as much iron as ground beef, making them a great source for vegetarians and pregnant women. They're also rich in magnesium, which helps maintain healthy bones and is vital for energy. Cashews are also a source of calcium, vitamin B, zinc, folic acid, vitamin E, and trace amounts of omega-3 fatty acids. They also have a lower fat content than most other nuts and can help reduce the incidence of gallstones.
